CRACKING / FLAKING

CRACKING / FLAKING

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

Description

POSSIBLE CAUSES:

  • Use of lower quality paint that has inadequate adhesion and flexibility.Overthinning or overspreading the paint.
  • Inadequate surface preparation, or applying the paint to bare wood without first applying a primer. Excessive hardening and embrittlement of alkyd paint as the paint job ages.

SOLUTION:

  • Remove loose and flaking paint with a scraper or wire brush, sanding the surface and feathering the edges. If the flaking occurs in multiple layers of paint, use of a filler may be necessary. Prime bare wood areas before repainting. Use of a top quality primer and top coat should prevent a recurrence of the problem.
